Remembrance Day 2018
I wanted to create a mandala for today. So, I did one with eleven remembrance poppies, with the look of stained glass too. And with that bright centre that suggests hope and a better future.
There's a lot more about this mandala and some of my thoughts about remembrance day and the 100th anniversary of Armistice, when the guns of war fell silent at 11:11 on the 11th of the eleventh month in 1918 on my blog -
Autumn Mandala 6 Nove 2018
Digitally drawn and coloured using a microsoft surface pen, a microsoft surface studio and autodesk sketchbook pro.

Colour Me Calm

Tue Apr 22, 2014, 3:12 PM
As the book is now listed on Amazon, I guess the cat is out of the bag.

I have done the illustrations for a book called Colour Me Calm which can be found here….  I'm still working on the last few coloured illustrations for it, before I turn my hand to the next book, which will be called Colour Me Happy.


This is the reason not much art has been uploaded and I've been very quiet here (sorry to those still awaiting a reply and I hope you'll forgive me).

It's all exciting for me and has been helping me through an extended period of illness.  Colour Me Calm and Colour Me Happy are written by an art therapist, Lucy Mucklow, as a way for people to use colouring and patterning as an aid to calm and peace and happiness, which is exactly how art helps me, and now I can help others who don't have the confidence to draw to find the same peace, calm and contentment that I do.

I'd like to thank all of you who've been wonderful in your support and words that have helped me gain the confidence in my art to accept the offers of the editors.  My thanks goes also to deviantART as through displaying my work here, these wonderful people have found my art and liked it enough to approach me to work with them.

Angela ~ I don't do Facebook or any social media, but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your line drawings in the Color Me series; I have and enjoy all five, but don't care quite as much for Stress Free because there aren't any scenes like the rest of the books have.  I only work in colored markers (Prismacolor, Blick, Sharpie) and don't do any shading.  Unfortunately, I have to take these beautifully bound books apart so I can work on the individual pages, I don't see how anyone can color them right in the books!  I scan my colorings into an iPhoto album (over 200 so far), and keep the originals in plastic sleeves in big notebooks.  Every now and then I wish I could ask you a question about a drawing, but I can't find your email address.  Anyhow, be assured that you have at least one big fan here in Washington State!  ~ Priscilla Miller (pillamilla)

Hi Priscilla.  I rarely pop along here my apologies for my delay in replying to you.  I'm glad you like the work I do.  People seem to eithr love or hate the bindings of the books; I had no say in this.  If you'd like my email address it's Artwyrd at aol dot com.

Hi, have just read your article in heART magazine. Gosh I love your art journal pages. I have looked at endless journals and have seen nothing that I really liked; the colours and sparkle and life in your pages is just beautiful. Not sure where you are in the UK but there is an exhibition of Mucha's poster art and some original drawings at the Russel Coates museum in Bournemouth. Noticed you like art nouveau! X
